The Directors

Harewood Park has been owned by the same two directors who met in 1981 as colleagues working in a specialist rehabilitation team within the local NHS psychiatric hospital.

One director has a nursing background and the other in social work. They recognised the need for community based rehabilitation for younger adults and opened Harewood Park in 1986.

They continue to play an active role in maintaining the high standards offered.
